Over 10 years ago, I was living a life of "shoulds". I'd gotten my degree, bought a house, found a fantastic man.
I had a great career in a meaningful profession (and an office with a hella nice view).
Only trouble was, that "successful" career left me sobbing in my Starbucks - in public - on the daily.
Following the rules and doing what I was supposed to do didn't get me the life of my dreams.
Instead, it got me a six month medical leave from work - I had a complete, absolutely spectacular breakdown.
So I decided to try something different.
I quit my job, moved out of the city to a farm, welcomed my first child and decided that whatever work I did from then on out was gonna be on MY terms.
I'm now the proud owner of two successful small businesses that I've built by using my Slow Values as my compass.
I flipped the bird to my "shoulds", broke all the rules and built my businesses to fit my life, instead of the other way round.
The result is a career that I love, a community of customers who are like family and a life of purpose.
(No more tears in my 'buckies, neither.)
